AVTOVAZ is looking for suppliers from Asian countries


 

RusAutoNews.- “Avtovaz is looking for suppliers from Asian countries,” told the Governor of the Samara region Dmitry Azarov to Interfax. He said that the problems of the carmaker are primarily logistical, which is connected with the conflict in Ukraine.

Earlier it was reported that “due to the ongoing crisis in the supply of electronic components and in order to prevent a significant reduction in the earnings of employees,” the company has rescheduled its corporate summer vacation from July 25 – August 14 period to April 4-24. The aim is to accumulate the necessary stock of components for a stable operation of the car plants in Izhevsk and Togliatti.

Since the second half of 2021, Avtovaz regularly introduces temporary downtimes due to semiconductors shortage. The company is trying to make up for the forced shutdowns by extending workweeks and balancing shift times depending on the current supply situation.
